Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Fri): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour and then stroll through Ka'anapali Beach. On the next day, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, then wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Lahaina United Methodist Church.

For traveler tips, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Lahaina route planning site .

Houston to Lahaina is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of car, flight, and bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. When traveling from Houston in July, plan for slightly colder days in Lahaina, with highs around 86°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Kula.
